Education Days

Education Days

Education Days are special days set aside for students in grades 3rd through 6th.  Students will watch our colonial past come to life through demonstrations and living exhibits.

The events take place the Friday before our two major events.  The dates for the next two events are:

  • “A Day to Remember”- Oct. 18 2024
  • “Under the Crown”- March 14, 2025


What You Need to Know

What to Expect

If you have a large group, you will be divided into smaller groups for the event. There will be demonstrations and presentations throughout the park. Groups can choose what order they visit the demonstrations/presentation and which ones they visit. We do ask that you move to a different area if it is crowded. There will be a signal when it's time to change to a new location. There will be a break for lunch. You can bring your lunch in coolers and it will be delivered to the lunch area. Please LABEL your cooler.

Age Range

Education Days at the Living History Park are limited to grades 3rd-6th in public, private and religious schools. Home school cooperatives may also send their students in these grades as a group and must adhere to the same rules as the other schools. The person making the reservation for a home school group is responsible for passing on information from the Education Day coordinator to the parents, collecting fees and paying the invoice. NO CHILDREN UNDER THIRD GRADE WILL BE ALLOWED ON THE PARK DURING EDUCATION DAY.

Unaffiliated home school families may attend the weekend event as a family. Be advised that bringing a baby stroller will limit your access to some parts of the park. No entry fee is charged on the weekend and food is available for purchase.

Chaperones / Teachers

We require two chaperones for each group of ten students with the exception for the aides of special needs students. Each chaperone or teacher must wear a tag identifying themselves and their school and have a list of the students under their supervision. The responsibility of each chaperone is to make this day educational, safe, and fun for the students. Chaperones will be held responsible for any damage done by unattended children in their care. No children under the age of 3rd grade are allowed in the park during Education Day.

Be advised that the Park is a technology-free zone. Cell phones are carried for emergencies and taking pictures by adults only. No public wi-fi available.

Hours & Lunch

This event runs from 10am to 1pm with a lunch break. Please arrive by 9:30am to get parked and through the gate by 10am to start the day. No food or drink is sold in the park on Education Day. You may bring your own lunch to be eaten on the grounds from 11:30am to 12pm. The day ends at 1pm. Please exit the Park orderly and make sure to collect your trash and other belongings.

NOTE: The Sweet Shoppe will sell sweets and the Mercantile will sell rock candy, jerky and water.
